EDITORS’ NOTES

Although it only flourished for a few years during the late '60s, Latin boogaloo was a fun and funky transitional sound connecting mambo and cha cha cha to salsa. Young Nuyoricans gobbled up boogaloo's groovy blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms, R&B, pop, and soul. Songs like Ricardo Ray's coaxing "Lookie, Lookie" and Joe Bataan's locomotive "Subway Joe" gave Latin dancers a chic new sound all their own. The soundtrack to Mathew Ramirez Warren's documentary easily, and thrillingly, justifies both boogaloo's brief heyday and its 21st-century resurgence.
